About This Class

Image transfer with photocopies is a simple way to create print designs that have a dreamy, evocative quality. In this class, I'm going to show you a few ways to do image transfers using collage design.

Collage is used everywhere from street art and advertising to clothing design, music and fine art. It's fun, and it's accessible: anyone from a kindergartener to a seasoned art professional can snip up pieces of the existing culture and reassemble them into electrifying new hybrids.

All you need is a piece of paper, fabic or wood plus a photocopy and a little acrylic gel medium. Very quickly you'll be able to make something beautful, disturbing or thought-provoking!
